Structures Strengthened with Bonded Composites

Structures Strengthened with Bonded Composites presents a comprehensive resource on the strengthening of concrete, reinforced and prestressed concrete, masonry, steel and other composite structures using externally-bonded FRP composites. The book emphasizes a systematic and fundamental investigation on bonding and debonding behavior of the FRP-concrete interface and structural performances of FRP-strengthened structures with a combination of experimental, theoretical and numerical studies. This book will appeal to all those concerned with strengthening and retrofitting of existing structures from the effect of additional anticipated loads in the civil sector. Discusses the FRP strengthening of different types of structures, including bridges, tunnels, buildings, historic structures and underwater constructions Establishes a systematic theory on interfacial fracture mechanics and clarifies different debonding mechanisms Describes design methods and makes comparison of design considerations and methods among different countries Presents temperature and fatigue effects and long-term behavior for different strengthening methods

The in situ rehabilitation or upgrading of reinforced concrete members using bonded steel plates is an effective, convenient and economic method of improving structural performance. However, disadvantages inherent in the use of steel have stimulated research into the possibility of using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials in its place, providing a non-corrosive, more versatile strengthening system. This book presents a detailed study of the flexural strengthening of reinforced and prestressed concrete members using fibre reinforces polymer composite plates. It is

Originated in 1940s, fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are generally characterized by combining high strength and high stiffness fibres with relatively weaker matrices. The extraordinary properties of FRP composites of lightweight, high strength-toweight ratio corrosion resistance, potentially high overall durability and tailorability enable them to be used in areas where the conventional materials might be restricted. Approximately forty years ago, the concept of using bonded FRP composites as a means to maintain aging metallic aircraft was instituted in Australia. And
